Quotes on the Soul

“Never think there is anything impossible for the soul. It is the greatest heresy to think so.
If there is sin, this is the only sin – to say that you are weak, or others are weak.”

 Swami Vivekananda

“The soul in man is greater than his fate.”

- Sri Aurobindo, Savitri

“The soul that can
Live alone with itself
Meets God..”

- Sri Aurobindo, Savitri

“Our soul has infinite potentiality and this infinite potentiality has to be manifested here on earth. The soul came from the Supreme to manifest Him. The more the soul manifests Truth or Divinity, the greater the achievement both for the soul and for the Supreme.”

- Sri Chinmoy [1]

The body was born and it will die. But for the soul there is no death. It is like the betel-nut. When the nut is ripe it does not stick to the shell. But when it is green it is difficult to separate it from the shell. After realizing God, one does not identify oneself any more with the body. Then one knows that body and soul are two different things.

- Sri Ramakrishna [2]

“Love is the song of the soul, singing to God.”

P.Yogananda [3]

“The soul migrates from body to body. Weapons cannot cleave it, nor fire consume it, nor water drench it, nor wind dry it.”

- Bhagavad Gita [4]
